My mom lies dying today and I have no words to say. My heart is filled with saddness as well as joy knowing that she will soon be taking that journey to Heaven. It has been a long process since the event that claimed her independence 4 years ago. We have went through many trials and tribulations. Many major financial struggles obtaining medications. Sometimes being in access of $1,200 per month. I praise my sweet and wonderful wife for always being supportive and helping me. The Lord has also blessed me with my dear friend Roy that would sit with at times my wife and I had conflicting shifts. My son Michael has also been such a help.
Being her primary full time caregiver has been one the greatest opportunities of my life…
Here is a letter of prayer to God when she was fighting for her life during this journey.
November 12, 2014
I sit with my Mom, as I have many nights listening to her breath, never knowing when it will be her last breath. I reflect on the good times and even the bad. I remember her giving heart which she still has today.
I remember her in the kitchen cooking supper, cutting my hair and also making me clothes. But her fragile hands cant do that anymore.
Now I hold her hand in my hand, her heart in my heart, I sit with her now when she is confused and sometimes upset not able to walk. I would not trade anything for my Mom. Because it is a blessing and a miracle that I still have her in my life. I love her more than ever before.
I will continue to help her walk, help her with all of the things she is unable to do. I will continue to be patient and help her recover. I will cook for her and continue to care for her. She is who You Lord provided for me as my mom. She is precious to me in any condition.
Please watch over her, keep her safe and give her peace above all understanding..
Isiah 66:13 “As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you.
Enjoy this season of your life, look at every situation you may encounter as an opportunity for me to love you and care for you as you did for me. May you allow me to return what you have openly and freely given to me as my Mom….
I Love You.
Your only son,
Please pray for my family..
